COURTLAND – Milton Williams Sr. reached out for his Heavenly home on Sunday, Oct. 16, 2022, but left his earthly home on Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2022 surrounded by his family. Milton was born to Herman and Della Crocker Williams on Sept. 6, 1937, in Courtland. Milton, affectionately known to many family members and friends as “Uncle Milton,” had a matchless love for his family and would do whatever he could to make everyone happy.
Milton received his education at St. Paul’s College, Lawrenceville, where he learned his masonry craft. He was a successful business owner/masonry contractor for over 40 years. He was extremely proud to show others the work he did throughout the Hampton Roads area and was highly respected and loved by many businessmen within the community. Milton was a faithful member of East End Baptist Church and served on the Board of Trustees and Building Ministry until his health failed him.
Milton leaves to cherish his memory, his wife, Goldie P. Williams; sons, Milton C. Williams Jr., Andre L. Williams (Clayton); daughters, Jewel Williams-Jones (James) and Joan Turner (William). He is also survived by his sister, Eunice Wilson; one granddaughter, two step-grandsons; one step great-grandson and many nieces and nephews who loved him immensely as well as his “grand-dog” Zoe, that never left his side during his last days. He was preceded in death by his parents, siblings Emma Boykins, Wilbert Williams, Herman Williams, Mary Porter and Barbara Harris.
The family extends a thank you to an outstanding care team, Jacqueline Hill, Carolyn Hill, Gladys Hunt, Alauna Samuels and a special thank you to his caregiver, Mearl Boone who was with him to the end.
Visitation will be held at the funeral home Sunday, Oct. 23, 2022 from 4 – 6 p.m. A homegoing service will be held at 11 a.m. on Monday, Oct. 24 at East End Baptist Church, 1056 Portsmouth Boulevard in Suffolk with the Pastor Dr. Wayne D.
